“This style of resort living has become the new norm in the luxury market,” said Agent Scott Grigg of The Grigg’s Group at Realty Executives. “Buyers are leaving the bigger cities, or buying additional property, to have an Arizona estate that looks and feels like what they would experience at a resort and is something they can enjoy year-round.”
Located at 5030 E. Mockingbird Ln. in Paradise Valley, Arizona, the home features separate formal dining and living room areas, an office/den with a fireplace and built-in shelving, a full bar entertaining area with seating, an 18-seat movie theater, a wine closet and tasting area, a great room with fireplace and pocket doors that open up to the expansive patio, a separate gaming area with exit to the front courtyard, an open kitchen with a Wolf 6-burner and griddle gas range, Sub Zero fridge and freezer, a breakfast nook with additional fireplace, a spacious master bedroom with a private sitting room area with fireplace, his and her closets and an in-door hair salon, a six-car garage and the show-stopper backyard which features two pools connected by a lazy river and a center island that includes a firepit and 10-person spa.
The separate guest house includes an open great room with fireplace, pocket doors that open to the patio area, a full kitchen with bar seating, two guest bedrooms and en-suite baths and a two-car garage.
“When we were building the home in 2004, the original owners saw it in the framing stage and just fell in love with the space so we began incorporating things they were looking for and by the time we finished the pools (which took 3 days and 6 hoses to fill with water), the following day the owners found out they needed to move across the country,” said Rod Cullum, Builder and Owner of Cullum Homes. “That was the only time we’ve built a home where the original buyer never got to even dive into the pool or sleep in the house.”
